April 11, 2012 - Jumped the Training Max: Tonight I worked Gamble up to the maximum I'll need to face in Stadium Jumping -- 1.05 high (3'-5") by 1.1 wide (3'-7"). No sweat. He jumped with confidence and with ease. Here is the video:

April 3, 2012 - Tracy rode Gamble today: Tracy had her regular weekly training session with Gamble and she said he as good as gold. So the cut and stitches, etc. didn't traumatize the poor boy!

April 2, 2012 - Gamble got a Booboo: Gamble managed to get a half decent cut (2 cm long by about 2 mm deep) above his right eye. If it were on his butt, I wouldn't have worried about it, but it was close to his eye, so Dr. Stan Henderson popped out (Tara wasn't available) to stitch him up with a couple or three stitches. While he was dopey, Dr. Stan floated his teeth and cleaned his sheath.
